His debut recording, “Killin’ Time,” boasted five Number 1 hits — unprecedented from a debut in any genre — and he has since gone on to sell more than 20 million albums worldwide.

Prolific singer-songwriter Black has long been heralded as one of country music’s brightest stars.  To date, Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs, a benchmark in any artist’s career.

An astounding one-third of these songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit-song status at country radio. The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the Triple Platinum “Killin’ Time,” marked a shift in the industry with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. CMT lists this album as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Country Music.

Released while Black was still an unknown Texas-based artist and writer, “Killin’ Time” won Black a collection of awards that included: Country Music Association Horizon Award, Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year, American Music Awards Favorite New Male Country Artist, Academy of Country Music Best New Male Vocalist, Academy of Country Music Best Male Vocalist, Academy of Country Music Album of the Year (Killin’ Time), and Academy of Country Music Single of the Year (“A Better Man”).

While it’s well-known that Black is an accomplished singer and guitarist, people may be surprised to learn that he is also proficient on drums and harmonica.

In addition to a heavy touring schedule, Black is currently developing a Broadway production based on the life of his friend Roy Rogers.

Black branched out even further with an appearance on Donald Trump’s hit reality series “Celebrity Apprentice.” As a result of the friendship on the show between Black and fellow contestant and Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, the teammates are working to secure a total of $1 million dollars in matching fund donations for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation.

Tickets are priced at $39 to $55 and premium at $65. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket.
